Do you have what it takes to protect an egg from a fall?
Ready for a science challenge? Let’s design a device to shield an egg from a drop of 1m or more! Kids will explore the structural strength of materials and the physical limits of eggs in this EGGcellent activity.
1 Your Guide
As a scientist, I LOVE exploring and learning through hands-on experimenting! Planting seeds and sprouts and watching them grow is one of my favourite things to do. I am an active learner and am currently participating in my MEd, my fourth university degree. I have worked with the Ontario Science Centre, Science North, and as a grade 7 and 8 classroom teacher for many years - all great places to try new things. I believe staying curious is the most important thing people can do!
I like taking pictures of plants, animals, water and sky, then use them to create fun works of art using glass, wood or paint!
